have four children in the san francisco unified school district, at george washington carver elementary school, and martin luther king school. i'm the president of the ptsa at my child's elementary school and a member of coleman advocacy for children and youth. i am here today to talk about the achievement gap and how our african-american children are falling behind and how the gap is growing between african-american children as a group. this summer i took part in a leadership academy with coleman advocacy and learned that more than 65% of african-american children in the districts are not proficient in language, arts and math, while caucasian children looks nothing like ours. i also learned about the school to prison pipeline and the result achievement gap plays. our african-american children fall forced and get pushed into prison because the district has not taken the time to sit down with the little african-american boys and girls and really invest in them. more needs to be done before it is too late. it is important. our children's lives are at stake now more than ever.

. and with that i actually submit to you just a device that we are actually using to work with san francisco unified around the programs that we've done during the summer. and whether we are tracking where folks know in the school district ho numbers, whether we can actually look at the students that are in after school programs and what that impact is on their school day. and doing more trainings around what the state standards are, the schools know them. the school district knows them, but what about the service providers? what is it that the kids should be do at the end of the day, what that should look like. so, again, thank you for this and i look forward to seeing what comes from it. >> thank you very much. and i believe now we'll be hearing from our deputy superintendent. guadalupe guerrero. >> good afternoon, commissioner, and supervisors. guadalupe guerrero. i think i'm in the eighth week for deputy superintendent for instruction, innovation and social justice. glad to speak on the topic today. let me switch over to our powerpoint. there we go, thank you. today's presentation there's a few

i actually represented the san francisco unified school district as a lawyer on the consent decree case. one thing to remember is that san francisco unified was actually under court order for more than two decades because of discrimination. and a federal court order, you know, overseeing the operations of the school district could not fully address all of the issues that we're talking about . and during that time each year the school district was getting about $40 million from the state to address those issues. so, just to provide some context. so, my suggestion would be to the folks, the supervisors who requested this hearing and to many of the people that i hear, i do think it would be helpful so that we don't have a situation where we talk about this and nothing happens, to set up a small working group to come up with some suggestions in terms of moving forward whether it's the creation of a task force, whether it is, you know, something larger, because the reality is that we're talking about public education. but there are so many different issues that are a part of this that t

school uc or ucs eligible and not graduating san francisco unified school district with a diploma if this pattern persists. so, just to call it out, for our 2014 class, african-american students, those are 246 kids today not on track. these are students that are not performing with a d or better in their required courses and only 76 that are on track if you look at the minimal requirements. if you see the 2015 class, you see that number there. now, of course, as they become juniors and seniors, you'll notice that the sequence gets even a little more stringent. so, the big question is what are some of the strategic actions and interventionses for closing this achievement gap, which is persisted for generations? >> commissioner. >> excuse me, deputy lieutenant. i have a question or clarification on the last slide. does that include students that are just in our regular schools or does that include our county schools? >> good afternoon, bill sanders, director division of curriculum instruction. it includes all students in that grade. >> okay, thank you. >> thank you. it's good to hav

expectation for the san francisco police department and also the unified school district, and that being that in the design, the practice and the implementation of this memorandum we really want to make sure that the students are not treated as subjects, but instead as active stakeholders in this process. we feel like students' input should be involved in the design, but also take into consideration things like students' involvement in the selection of [speaker not understood], also evaluation of [speaker not understood], that is really important. and as well as what was said earlier, to the extent you have student input, what that does is it affirms and values that students have a voice na process and their opinions are valued as equal to the people who are behind designing these policies. we hope you can send that message to the students and you can support the involvement and their investment and that you actively work to seek their legitimate input in the designing of this program. thank you. >> thank you, commissioner. thank you for your service. next speaker. >>> if i may please ha

presentations, one from the san francisco unified school district and the other one from dcyf. could you give me your gut reaction or some -- if you can -- or you can give me some kind of -- some thoughts that you were thinking as you were listening to some of the data you presented today. >> yes, mr. chair, and supervisor cohen. there is actually data the school district provided is promising the children for tomorrow, right. we're dealing with a crisis of high school students today and the issue is they did not present any recommendations on how to resolve the issues that are facing us today. and, so, when we get to figuring out how we can get the school district to not just also prepare students at kindergarten and the rest of the elementary grades, but also focusing on the students that were not given adequate education that they deserved yesterday, then i can talk about that. >> so, you probably know what the numbers were looking like 10 years ago as i was. thank you, mr. chair. that's all i have. >> colleagues, i'd like to turn it over to public comment. i think it's really important for u
